I welcomed the Minnesota Association of Women Police to Duluth this morning as began their yearly conference. I talked how our candidate "funnel" is broken in Minnesota. In the 1970's and 1980's our state was a model for policing; now chiefs struggle to find candidates with the maturity and life experience needed for police work. It is time for change in our state so we can recruit the best and brightest police officers.
